On Friday and Saturday, April 4 and 5, Susan Botti will be performing Meredith Monk and György Kurtág works and her own music at Kerrytown Concert House in a recital entitled Scenes and Stories. Sometimes unaccompanied and other times playing with U-M flute professor Amy Porter, U-M harp professor Lynne Aspnes, contrabassist Diana Gannett, and percussionist Jonathan Ovalle, Botti will also bring her unique song styling to works by Tom Waits and Fats Waller. What, one wonders, will "Soldiers' Things" sound like interpreted by Medea and "Jitterbug Waltz" sung by Salome?
